Short Term. /through Friday/ .
Low pressure will be over the gulf coast region this afternoon, with a trough extend east from it across southern GA. Flow around this low will bring moisture off the gulf. While much of the energy available for storms this afternoon has past with the main line of storms which moved offshore. Any breaks that occur in the clouds will result in additional instability, helping to generate more convective activity. A few strong storms will still be possible with gusty winds, but the main feature of storms for the remainder of this afternoon into evening will be the potential for locally heavy rainfall.
Similar weather as Today expected for Tuesday, as the low slowly moves into GA. The low is then anticipated to move toward the Carolina coast Wednesday, then begin traveling up the east coast Thursday. Another day with higher than usual convective chances expected Wednesday, due to the proximity of the low, with a little lower chance for Thursday, as some drier air advects in behind the exiting low but storms still likely.
A trough of low pressure at the surface is expected to extend northeast to southwest across the southeast US coastal states Friday. Showers and thunderstorms will continue to be likely into Friday, due to the combination of diurnal heating and this surface troughing.
Temperatures will trend near to a little above normal this period.
Long Term. /Friday night through Monday/ .
A trough of low pressure will extend across the southeastern US states throughout this period helping to provide convergence. The region will also be under a 500 mb trough which will produce instability, in addition to the instability from diurnal heating. The combination of these features will keep mainly day time showers and storms likely through this period.
Temperatures will trend above normal this period.
High pressure will be to the east of the region through mid week, as an area of low pressure tracks eastward across the gulf coast states, then off the Carolina coast late Wednesday into Thursday. This low is then expected to track northeast up the coast. The National Hurricane Center is monitoring this low for possible tropical development. The region will be between high pressure to the southeast and a trough of low pressure that will extend northeast to southwest across the southeastern US into the weekend.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
